KUNIKO - kuniko plays reich - cheltenhamfestivals.com


01 April 2013

Kuniko Kato released her 2011 album of Steve Reich arrangements to huge critical acclaim and the praise of the composer himself. Her latest project, due for release in May, takes one more of Reich's counterpoints and a selection of some of the best known works from the meditative minimalist Arvo Pärt. Tracks from the aptly titled new CD, ‘Ultimate Minimalism', will be performed live by Kuniko using a visually stunning array of electronic loops and speakers that allow her to duet with the melodies and patterns she has just played. Her performance is powerful, balletic and truly enthralling to watch. Beautiful, intricate, captivating arrangements of some of the most heartfelt music that minimalism has to offer.
